Scholarship for Opportunities Fund
To provide support to School of Education students who are experiencing a financial exigency that may prohibit them from continuing their education. If the fund balance reaches $50K, the fund will be administered as a pure endowment.
This fund was established by Dean Kathy Schultz and her husband David Paul in May of 2017 to provide scholarship awards for students enrolled in the School of Education who are not eligible to receive federal or state financial aid, that graduated from high school or obtained a GED within the United States, and can demonstrate financial need. Applicants with active Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) or Advancing Students for Stronger Economy Tomorrow (ASSET) status are particularly encouraged to apply for these awards and will receive preference for this scholarship.
